lyrics

When We Are Unseen

"You may forget but let me tell you this
someone in some future time
will think of us"

Beat those swaddled blues gluing
your lips from spilling
your birthright
from your mouth spilling
her island tongue

I was born kneeling at the station of the goddess
hungry begging and so tired
I was born pagan craving moonlight craving woman
born weeping garden soil of taste unseen

stammering blind stupid sweet
this utterance of gulp of blush
bruising your cheek bone
pink apple blend
curling curves against your breath
against the forgotten grip

I was born kneeling at the station of the goddess
hungry begging and so tired
I was born pagan craving moonlight craving woman
born weeping garden soil of taste unseen

Lipsticks burst the Nightwood to its knees
like a half crazed man like a man

So we kneel
in the cold dirt
